Homework Help: Finding Lambda 4 for mechanical harmonics

  1. Jul 8, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am trying to find the equation for lambda four for mechanical harmonics.

    2. Relevant equations

    I know that lambda1=2L, lambda2=L, lambda3=2L/3, but neither google nor my textbook have the equation for lambda4!

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have searched my physics textbook, class notes, and google for this and have come up with absolutely nothing.
    Can anyone please assist? I would greatly appreciate it!
    Thank you!

    OH my gosh I'm such a dork. Lambda4= 2L/4, I figured out the pattern all by my lonesome. Geez, I'm bad at physics!
